COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It may sound nuts, but most ales with nutty flavors or aromas are made without any real nuts. Abita Pecan Harvest Ale is made with real Louisiana pecans. The natural oils from the nuts give the ale a light pecan finish and aroma. It’s wonderful paired up with both red meats and seafood - and no suprise it’s great with nuts too. Abita Pecan Harvest Ale, crack one open for yourself today.

Aroma is of caramel. Color is amber and the flavor is of pecan. Kind of watery and lacking middle and finish. A common occurrence I’ve found with abita brews

Copper color, light-med body, light toasted malty flavor, slight pecan taste in finish, not overwelming, overall a nice fall beer if you’re looking for something other than a pumpkin or marzen.

Bottle. Dark clear copper with some reddish tints and an off white head. Smells like beer with some slight nutty hints. Taste is fruity with some toffee and roast malt. Palate is medium mouthfeel and smooth. Light carbonation. Not very interesting.

Deep reddish orange in color... Aroma of nuts, pecans, and some off soapy spices... Flavor is toasted nuts, light crisp body, hint of bitterness on finish... Decent ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Crash_the_dog (151) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Absolutely gorgeous on the eyes - rich red color with a thick head when poured from a bottle into a 20 oz tulip. Very, very slight nuttiness on the nose. Crisp, clean mouthfeel, almost like a big production lager. Flavor was "meh" at best - not much to it. My Bud Light-drinking wife loved it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer reminds me of walking through a field of multi-colored trees in the autumn air. It starts with a silky off-white head and a glass full of caramel and amber hues. Autumn smells such as maple brown sugar and candied nuts come to mind on the nose with some nutmeg spice mixed in as well. The slightly sweet, light-bodied taste is not as intense as the aromas might initially suggest, but the beer has a nice carbonation to it, good hop structure which adds balance, and finishes crisply and refreshingly. Definitely one of the better autumn seasonal ales I’ve had.

EtTuCthulhu (1054) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - OCT 22, 2013
The aroma, although the pecan component is nice, is completely overtaken by the off-putting basement aroma of the yeast. The appearance has a beautiful hazy copper color with a large off-white head. However, the taste cannot save this beer due to how it tastes like it smells due to a mild sour, touch sweet, and touch umami flavor. The palate combines a lively carbonation, medium body, nutty finish, and a thin texture.

drostj (105) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very nice clear amber brown. Very little aroma - a bit woodsy, slightly musty. A bit tangy with a slight effervescence; good clean flavor - somehops and a bit of toasted malt, slightly sweet. Don’t get pecanat all though. Nice smooth finish. A good ale but nothing special. More pecans maybe? There are lots of decent ales out there - why not make this one stand out?

Draft pour. Translucent amber with a lazy white head. Aroma is nuts for sure and some sweet malty notes. Pretty light body. Alright.
